A message must be verbally conveyed to the other party in order for it to be fully comprehended by them. The following methods can help you get better at verbal communication.

  • Verify that the other person is listening to you. When you have something important to say to someone, make sure you have their attention by calling them by name and making eye contact before you speak.
  • Retain discipline. Your speech should be organized with a purpose in mind. Prior to speaking, take some time to think about what you’re going to say.
  • Use pronouns beginning with “I,” such as “I feel,” “I need,” or “I would like.” Since “I” statements place the emphasis on your sentiments, are less accusatory, and elicit less defensiveness, they help the other person comprehend your point of view rather than feeling attacked.
  • Speak loudly enough for the audience to understand. Avoid using jargon, slang, complex words, etc. Consider the other person’s age, sex, and emotional state when you speak to them.
  • Be truthful. Express your feelings honestly and politely. Consider this as an opportunity to introduce yourself to the other person during the chat.
  • Be exact and unbiased. Determine the current issue and how it is affecting you. Be careful not to use blanket statements like “always,” “ever,” or “never.” Remain focused; refrain from deviating into broader personality concerns or referencing prior difficulties.
  • Be positive. Think about the good things about the other person. Be specific, considerate, and open while appreciating someone. Make sure that the number of compliments exceeds the number of criticisms.
  • React, but don’t strike back. Be kind, cool, and positive. If the talk starts to become tense, take a brief pause. Decide on a time for the conversation to pick back up and keep to it.
  • Aim to settle conflicts rather than win them. If you are unable to reach an agreement straight away, pause and decide when you will try again. Try to find a solution, but be aware that you might occasionally need to accept failure.
